webinar: nutrition beyond the gluten-free diet

Today I saw the announcement for the next National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) webinar.  Food as Medicine for Celiac Disease: Nutrition Beyond the Gluten-Free Diet will be held on Wednesday, January 25 at 8:30 EST.  Sponsored by Blue Diamond and Cabot Cheese, the webinar is free of charge, and The Gluten Free RD (Rachel Begun, MS, RD) will host.  I'm a firm believer in food as medicine (and plan to take nutrition coursework in the near future). Sign up soon!

Interested in a past webinar?  Check out the archive, which offers video in Windows Media Player format as well as PDFs & other terrific resources.

News for me today (while I'm out with a sinus infection - boo!):
I signed up to have my blog added to the NFCA's list of Celiac and Gluten-Free Bloggers.  Yay!! 

My description:
As a twenty-something office assistant who is prepping for grad school, Jessi is passionate about food - growing, cooking, eating, and sharing it.  Active in the Cincinnati Celiac Support Group, she is a country girl who shares her experiences in making gluten-free easy, delectable, and convenient as she lives & works in the Queen City.  The informative blog has recipes, restaurant & product reviews, local events, and lots of links.

I'm also awaiting further information on a very interesting graduate program to earn a Masters in Science in....something medical.  I'll elaborate when my decision has been made & I start the application process. 2012 will be an exciting year as I plan my transition back to school and into the medical field, where I've always felt I belong.  This will be a year of entrance tests and prerequisite coursework for preparation as I continue working in my current rewarding position.

Happy eating :)
